When you dine here, you help here.

Your dining purchases make a positive impact on the local community. Dining on campus serves a greater purpose in sync with “Cura Personalis” (care of the whole person).

Here are just some of the great programs you support:

  Mar Vista School Lunch Program – Your purchases support healthy lunches for children suffering from food insecurity all summer.

  We offer many items from Homeboy Bakery, the world's most significant gang rehabilitation and re-entry program, making a difference right here in L.A.

  Lion Food Pantry – LMU Dining supports donations to the Lion Food Pantry to help students in need.

  Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Monica – Your purchases help us continue to work with the Boys and Girls Clubs to provide meals to young people when they can’t access a school or home meal.

  Loaves and Fishes – LMU dining supports the efforts of Campus Ministries in helping to feed the Homeless in L.A. and provide Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to the community.
